Detox knows very well the saying - you get what you pay for. This is so applicable to high-end audio too. Every audio equipment, with all its good design intentions and purposes (and value), is targeted at a certain price bracket. Once you feel the goodness has been “maxed” out, or you’ve outgrew it, it is the right time to move up. [Click here] to link to Detox’s original system.
Detox’s new hi-end system has gone up higher!
Detox’s main system has seen some major renovation since our last update. The Wilson Audio Sophia 2 made way for Sonus Faber Amati; pre and power amplifications are renewed; CDP has been replaced by hard-drive music/DAC and more notably; the arrival of the all-new Clearaudio Innovation Wood turntable/Universal tonearm.
Clearaudio Innovation Wood turntable with Clearaudio 9” Universal tonearm. Stunning good looks and outstanding sound.
This new turntable and arm are several steps up from his previous Clearaudio Avantgarde Magnum turntable. Accuracy, authority, detail, image is improved in every level. The next step is perhaps enjoying this level of performance with an equivalent high-end cartridge. Wow!
The newest Clearaudio Innovation Wood with the 70mm POM (delrin) platter. The black platter is a touch warmer and richer in tonality compared to the previous design.

Some twelve months have passed since Detox’s first taste of music on vinyl. We’ve been told he has run out of LP storage space - some 5 Ikea boxes and counting. From the way it goes, Detox’s is really happy with music reproduced from his analogue system. There’s no question in his mind which software format is the most investable.
